Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | BUZZ -

Mem­bers of the Play Golf Bali part­ner­ship were out in force at the sixth an­nual In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Golf Tour Op­er­a­tors (IAGTO) Asia Golf Tourism Con­ven­tion (AGTC). Branded ‘AGTC on the Beach’, the week’s gath­er­ing was billed as Asia’s largestever golf tourism event and took place at the Fu­rama Re­sort Danang and the Cen­tara Sandy Beach Re­sort, both of which are on the beach­front, only 15 min­utes from Danang Air­port. More than 4,000 meet­ings took place be­tween some 600 del­e­gates from 37 coun­tries in­clud­ing al­most 250 golf tour op­er­a­tors. Among the del­e­gates in­cluded rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Bali Na­tional Golf Club, Bukit Pandawa Golf & Coun­try Club, Han­dara Golf & Re­sort Bali and New Kuta Golf. All are part of the Play Golf Bali part­ner­ship that was launched this year with a view to spread­ing the word about the golf­ing de­lights of the Is­land of the Gods. As a re­sult of host­ing AGTC this year, Danang Depart­ment of Tourism ex­pects that Danang will be recog­nised as the heart of golf tourism in Viet­nam and that this will be a launch pad for Danang to be­come one of

Asia’s most pop­u­lar golf des­ti­na­tions. In ad­di­tion to launch­ing the Bali Golf Fes­ti­val (May 25 to June 24), the Play Golf Bali part­ners will join forces to host a Bali Golf­ing Ex­trav­a­ganza (Novem­berDe­cem­ber) and the Bali De­wata World Golf Tour­na­ment (De­cem­ber 19-25), an event staged in con­junc­tion with In­done­sia’s Min­istry of Tourism.
